Place the rock 3 shallow and its bomber. The ramp feature is cool.

awesome route. As said below dont be fooled by the CC guide saying low in the E4 grade, typo. Low in the E5 is what they mean, or stiff E4. Great either way.

Brad was aiming to do Resurrection, ended up linking the start of it into Left Wall and then finishing back up Resurrection. Was hard whatever it was.

wasnt really firing on all cylinders today, climbed poorly. in this state it felt quite tricky and bold, but i definitely wasn't in a place to judge today... ah well, an OK route that feels slightly squeezed in with pretty good climbing.

Rested on the rope a fair amount.. was good fun!

No harder than Resurrection. Rock 3 provides protection for the crux moves. Steady E4

Harder climbing and more serious than right wall & ressurection! Standard E5 6a.

Downgraded to E4 in the CC guide. Bit of a typo when it says low in the grade, it means low for E5.
Luke Brooks - Lead O/S - 25/Jul/11 with Liam

Rob Pitt - 2nd - 10/Jul/11 with Pete Harrison

Thought this was just as good as Resurrection. E4. About 6c+.

The CC book says this is Low in the grade E4. I thought it was quite an ordeal for low end E4. Definitely felt more of a quest than Resurrection.

a qualified onsight but i'll take it. harder than i remember. as good as Resurrection but compromised by being shorter. take a few (4?) slings and i got what i think is a good RP5 on its side in an obvious diagonal slot out right once stood on the flake/ramp feature, this gives comfort for crux moves. being slightly trickier, more sustained (with good shake outs though) and less well-protected than the harder E4s ive done made this feel a step up but i havent done any E5s to compare it with. Fr 6b+/c.

Ok rite think i missed all the gear, had a cam in the thin crack beneath the BIG horizontal from here my next piece was once id stood on the ramp, a shitty rock3. Still felt soft E5 with that massive runout.

annoyed at this: spent considerable time contemplating how and trying to get stood up on the ramp. by the time id done this and sorted gear my feet were killing me and i couldnt properly begin to work out moves to pocket so lowered here to rest feet. plus, someone said a rock 4 was the crucial runner - all i could get was two dubious rock 3s so i was paranoid that id missed something. even if these went youd be falling onto good gear below, but quite a fall! from what i did it was all very nice, similar in difficuly to Resurrection. i'll be back on a cooler day...

Didn't bother with the peg, looked too off route. Got a friend in the very left of the break and laybacked up the flake/ramp. There is a good wire just before you move left. I think it's E5 without the peg
